Abstract

On June 13-15, 2014, the Second National Symposium on Experiential Education in Law took place in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Alliance for Experiential Learning in Law and Elon University School of Law hosted the symposium, with the support of Northeastern University School of Law. Presenters included professors and practitioners across multiple disciplines, including business, medicine, and architecture, and they shared their insights about the value of experiential education in their fields. Working groups from the Alliance for Experiential Learning in Law also presented their findings and distributed a set of working papers, which eventually culminated into this report. The report covers research in six areas of experiential learning, including defining a vision and mission for the experiential education movement, tracking the developing rhetoric of experiential education, studying cost and sustainability measures for experiential legal education, integrating experiential learning into the law school curriculum, establishing creative initiatives at law schools, and integrating with the profession.

The whole article is posted and reflects the work of a number of authors. Professors Barry and Paulsen wrote Part VI, The Role of Practitioners in Experiential Education. That section discusses their assessment of the contributions practitioners can make in achieving law school goals for student learning.
